Sadayatana

John Tocher surveys the free music landscape for new and old releases encompassing the realms of avant garde, experimental, electronic, musique concréte, industrial, dada-ist music. A transplant from the Los Angeles area, he now makes his home in southeast Texas near the border with Louisiana --deep in swamp country, where the ambiance is enhanced by cicadas and the occasional hurricane.

Played a long mix by Christian Salva of Kopp Netlabel fame: " O How We Felt These Days ". Nice mix, it fit the show very nicely. I like this netlabel quite a bit. Thank you Christian Salva! Played a lot of stuff from the Audiotalaia Netlabel . So good. Kind of a Spanish flavor to tonight's show. Always a good thing. New releases from Inside , Just Not Normal , and Otium netlabels.

Sunday there in the UK they lose an hour due to daylight savings time and he was up till 4 am playing live on the show. AWESOME! The middle section was a Dark Winter netlabel megamix with a twist.

New year's eve at Stillstream.com with Sadayatana at the helm. Why this brings to mind the ending of "The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari", I'm not sure I can say... Starting with this cool release from A Quiet Norway called "Live!", the show breaks into some film music from an Italian Giallo that never was . My microphone fails me again (actually it's me failing to setup my mic properly, I'll get the hang of this eventually --I'm used to a radio studio what can I say?) A track...

Hey I need some of those too. Careful though, it can still give you nightmares about giant spiders. Some field recordings from Luis Antero's new release " Life " on Audio Gourmet Netlabel .

Mostly new or recent releases tonight from webbed hand records , dark winter , bfw recordings , clinical archives and basic_sounds . It was a good couple weeks for dark experimental releases. I thought so anyway, I think you will agree. There's about 15 seconds of silence at the beginning of this one.

This is my Christmas show. Allan Goodman is doing a show in my slot this week. It's his birthday. Happy birthday Allan. Merry Christmas. This was an unscheduled raid on stillstream.com Was having some trouble with my microphone (again.) Instead of voice-overs back announcing the tracks there is some ambient background field recordings. It's like watching a football game without the announcers.

This is an impromptu show from this past Wednesday night. It was more of an experimental, just for fun testing type deal, not really meant to be podcast. But then disaster struck --my computer died. If you were listening Friday at the regularly scheduled time for Sadayatana you may have noticed it was a repeat of a previous show. Well now you know why. But the podcast must go on, so here is the show from Wednesday. Computer repairs going good. See you next week. start artist title 02:38 Louigi...

Nice to have Jason Sloan playing live. Great set. Had some technical difficulties with the mp3 tags. There's a trick with it where I play this big silent mp3 and it's tagged to say like "Jason Sloan live on Sadayatana". Something like that. Well the big mp3 didn't play for more than a second for some reason. And I didn't notice for a while.

Wow. Double wow. Nice live set by Dan Minoza, but then there were a few glitches. I think maybe streaming from Philly to Texas at 320kbps was not a good idea.

Starting with a mashup of a new track by Mystified: Satyr's Drone. I paired it with a homemade 78 I found on archive.org. I think they made it for their loved ones in the war. It's cute but also sounds like the Satyr's of Mystified's track so I went with it. Especially all the laughing. Then we had a live (with one overdub) performance by Muied Lumens. A track he prepared specially for this show. I had listened to it a couple times in the car --but really didn't get into until I listened to it...

New releases from Earth Mantra , Webbed Hand Records , Senile Dementia Productions and Kopp netlabels. A mostly russian flavored show. What can I say... so much good dark ambient music is from Russia. I downloaded [again...] the entire catalog from Senile Dementia Productions . And I have to say... this was not fun. It was track by track one at at time. I don't understand why they don't make their music available at archive.org. But I was pleased to see they are now sharing the music clearly...

The only experience of time that one can have is of a subjective time that is created by one's own mental processes, but in relationship to the Newtonian universe there is no time whatsoever. One exists in eternity, one has become eternal, the universe is aging at a staggering rate all around one in this situation, but that is perceived as a fact of this universe — the way we perceive Newtonian physics as a fact of this universe.

I remembered a phrase, 'the ephemeral city ,' that I had come across in a book at school.

Another mashup of one of Mystified's drone tunes. This time his soda bottle drone is mixed with an old bagpipe 78. So nice of him to let me abuse his music in this way. It's fun! Oh man... Fabián Ramírez played live from Mexico City --in his dark ambient incarnation Obscure Visions. Later in the week I stitched in a flac recording of his set that he provided me. Maximum fidelity. Sounds great. This set will be released later on my new Netlabel Buddhist on Fire . Nothing there now but some...

Couple cool tracks from the new Mayfairgrin release "This Delicate Confusion" on Webbed Hand Records . The rest of it is like a wacky electronica thing (wacky good!) The drumming on that "Sleep For Now" track reminds me of Peter Gabriel's "Last Temptation of Christ" soundtrack. The rest is as you see below... except I got to play another unreleased track from Magnetic Wind's upcoming release "La Petite Morte": "L'enfant fille (Baby Girl)". Very...

This one fashioned from tracks selected at random 10 minutes before show time. Not random exactly but picked via some secret intelligence built into a program I wrote. My way of collaborating with God so to speak. I like the way it came out. Hope you do too. The usual crunchy ambient sounds with drone, sound collage and some looping.

In the course of writing this book, I’ve given a lot of serious thought to the Big Question : what does it mean to be alive? If I were in Shizuko’s place, would I have the willpower to live as fully as she? Would I have the courage, or the persistence and determination? Could I hold someone’s hand with such warmth and strength? Would the love of others save me? I don’t know. To be honest, I’m not so sure. - Haruki Murakami, Underground: The Tokyo Gas Attack and the Japanese Psyche...

A mix of field recordings from my porch and in front of my house, rain and cicadas and drones. Some experimental music, some noise. Was a strange show. I had to go where the sound led me. Thank you to Mystified for creating his " Polka Drones ". I had challenged him as kind of a dare over Jack Hertz kidding me about the 78s I play at the end of my show (as if polka music could be a bad thing.) Mystified pulled through admirably. I knew he would... A track from the new The Implicit...

When I got home I mixed a stiff one and stood by the open window in the living room and sipped it and listened to the groundswell of traffic on Laurel Canyon Boulevard and looked at the glare of the big angry city hanging over the shoulder of the hills through which the boulevard had been cut. Far off the banshee wail of police or fire sirens rose and fell, never for very long completely silent. Twenty four hours a day somebody is running, somebody else is trying to catch him.

This was a fun show. One of my best ones I think. Straight dark ambient with some noise and soundscapes. Couple tracks from Mystified's as yet unreleased "Drifting". Actually it was released in 2007 for sale on recycled cassettes , but coming out again soon on Buddhist on Fire as CC music. Backyard Ghost again. Played these tracks on " Calm, Happy Whispers ", and listening to it later, it felt like I needed a seatbelt. Backyard Ghost rocks (in an ambient way of course...)...

Why should this propensity to seek beauty in darkness be so strong only in Orientals? The West too has known a time when there was no electricity, gas, or petroleum, yet so far as I know the West has never been disposed to delight in shadows . Japanese ghosts have traditionally no feet; Western ghosts have feet, but are transparent. As even this trifle suggests, pitch darkness has always occupied our fantasies, while in the West even ghosts are clear as glass. This is true too of our household...

In a corner of the concourse, by the main entrance, there was a small newsstand. The owner, a quiet, courteous old man with an air of breeding, had stood behind his counter for twenty years. He had owned a cigarette factory once, but it had gone bankrupt, and he had resigned himself to the lonely obscurity of his little stand in the midst of an eternal whirlpool of strangers . He had no family or friends left alive. - Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged (1957) start artist title 00:00 Ice Guild Kaiser...

He liked caves, and was tempted to set out for it. But distances here were deceptive, and there might not be time before dark; besides, he did not feel the necessary energy inside him. “Tomorrow I’ll come earlier and go up,” he said to himself. He stood looking up the valley a little wistfully, his tongue seeking the fig seeds between his teeth, with the small tenacious flies forever returning to crawl along his face. And it occurred to him that a walk through the countryside was a sort...

I told him a dream I had about a strange Arabian figure that was pursuing me across the desert; that I tried to avoid; that finally overtook me just before I reached the Protective City. "Who is this?" said Carlo. We pondered it. I proposed it was myself, wearing a shroud. That wasn't it. Something, someone, some spirit was pursuing all of us across the desert of life and was bound to catch us before we reached heaven. Naturally, now that I look back on it, this is only death: death...

All over the world major museums have bowed to the influence of Disney and become theme parks in their own right. The past, whether Renaissance Italy or ancient Egypt, is reassimilated and homogenized into its most digestible form. Desperate for the new, but disappointed with anything but the familiar, we recolonise past and future . The same trend can be seen in personal relationships, in the way people are expected to package themselves, their emotions and sexuality in attractive and...

Show starts with a collage and looping of tracks by Universos Virtuales (fantastic!) and generally moves into drone territory and layering of samples taken from the Librivox recording of H.G. Wells' " The Island of Dr. Moreau ". The samples were woven into the mix via a script that selected then at random then delayed the selection and playing of the next sample by a random interval. It worked well but you can hear a sample colliding with the voice over / podcast id. Oh well, this is...
